You are correct about Newfoundland being independent prior to 1949. Never underestimate a numismatist.5 months ago

Well, you taught me something.I didn't know that. That will make a nice set. Good luck.5 months ago
And now the Province is named Newfoundland and Labrador. By the time I finish my type set, I am going to want to visit Newfoundland, the Canadian maritime provinces have always intrigued me.
the Newfoundland Type collection has officially begun. The type set consists of 20 coins, including the 2 Dollar Gold piece. The Whitman Folder does not include the Gold coin, but that is OK, I will still buy it when the time comes. so far I have 6 of the coins, with a 5 Cent and 10 Cent (George VI) piece on order from Ebay. None of the coins is going to expensive, except the Gold piece, so I will buy two a month until the set is done. I should be done by June ish with the basic type set. Maybe I will be lucky and find one or two at ANA and PAN shows as well. We'll see.

Maybe inc a 1949 Canada $1 that commemorates Newfoundland? This was always a fav coin4 months ago
I have now found that one can have a complete type set of Canadian Provincial Coins, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia, by getting only 28 coins. The only coin selling for more than two hundred dollars is the Newfoundland 2 Dollar gold coin. All the others can be obtained for less than 100, and in most cases, substantially less than 100 Dollars. I think I am going to go for the whole enchilada. That combined with my Canada Type Set will give me a good solid Canadian collection.
